I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.
Sometimes when I get clustered and frustrated, I just want to escape life
And find that place close to the aroma of reality
I just want to escape the news and the horns
Maybe speak to a racoon and plant corns
I just want to escape the relationships and bills
I just want to escape the unsolved police cases and the drone kills
This place I live, all these people are slaves
Programmed life style, from birth as a battery to old age and the grave.
The Television watches us and tells us what to believe
Many may live a good life, but millions suffer in grief
Sometimes I just want to escape the rules of the rich
And place my soul off grid in a place where I can live
I want to move away from the whispers of society
Where I can admire the heavens and my schedule is never busy
I want to find that place where I can concentrate on who I am
This being, this creature I was told is called a man
I just want to throw away these cards and live from the land
Eat what I grow, grow what I eat is my ultimate plan
I want to be free, I want the lakes and the rivers to be my bath
And the rocks in the waters to be my path
I don’t want to vote for deceit and lies
Because their investments are much more important than a baby’s cries.
I don’t want to see their fancy suites and their twisted mouth
I want to escape, I wish for a portal to get out.
I want solitude, I want real wisdom. Wisdom of the worlds
I want to understand the ant, I want to understand the birds
My mind needs a reboot
Reborn, emerged as a real soul knowing the truth.
